Good evening all!
I’ve not had as productive Sunday as I had hoped but I’m blogging so that’s the main thing.
I went out in town last night for the first time in 2 weeks and as it always seems to be recently, it wasn’t anything extraordinary…I’m not quite sure what it is but certainly I know it’s not the company, I love my friends. But I’m just not enjoying nights out the way that I used to and I’m certainly not enjoying being drunk…am I growing up? The thing with me is I like going places that have live bands and new talent. I’d definitely say I’m more at home in a dingy pub with a glass of wine and some real music than in some over priced bars with girls vomiting over themselves. Something needs to give because I can’t not socialize that’s for sure.

I’m also having a bit of a style crisis, this happens when I’m not working in a store (I physically cant at the moment with my uni work load) I take a lot of inspiration from the places I work and really identify my style better. It also stops impulse buys because I have a good few hours to think a purchase through. Like the other day I stupidly walked into Topshop intending to buy a coat from the sale but instead I walked out with a £110 pound Gilet byThe Ragged Priest concession…I loved it but it was a stupid thing to do and when the buttons fell off it went straight back to the shop. I think that was a sign.

I also ended up taking a Pleather skirt back to H&M which I loved more than anything and it took me forever to find but a size 8 was just too big and although I had every intention to have the skirt taken in….I knew deep down it would just sit in my wardrobe with its tags still on looking at me guiltily, So i exhcnaged it for this gorgeous snake print dress which will look beautiful with a cute little jumper over the top when it starts to get colder.

Before I sign off and head over to my life long friend Bruno’s gig at the Shisha Garden in Northampton I wanted to share this beautiful blog I recently found and am Obsessed with (aswell as the girl that writes it) unfortunately Northampton isn’t blessed with the London standard of charity shops otherwise I’d be giving this girl a race to every store ha-ha

Ciao for now

    I totally understand you, about going out, and I think it’s growing up in head, I see these kids around the town wandering drunk and just thinking they have fun. Was fun sometimes back when I was just 2 year younger but… as you say for live band and new hopes and talents, I would kill to go out to see new local bands.. And, my town became definetly too small for me although there’s 1 million people out there..
    Anyway, I love this dress you’re wearing and it looks perfectly good with the hat.
    I also like your blog too, gonna follow you, and expect more comments from my side 🙂
    Dolly, xo
